If you've never heard the word “” before, that's okay. I made it up.

But before you revoke my literary license, consider how many people like use the word “like” in like almost everything they say!

A means to make a comparison using like or as.

is a common and contagious speech pathology characterized by like overuse of the word “like.”

Like haven't we had like enough of this?
It's like so annoying!
